The list of players who earned a new rank in May includes thirty-seven new Junior Masters (five points). The complete list is here.


The players who earned a new rank in the last few months received a congratulatory email from District Director Mark Aquino. A few of their responses can be read here.


NAP news: The North American Pairs (NAP) is a flighted national championship contested each year at the Spring NABC. Each district provides representatives in each flight who are (believe it or not) paid to play there. In D25 the date and location of the qualifying tournament for Flight A (open) have finally been set. It will be held at the same time and place as the qualifier for Flight B (0-2500): Mansfield, MA, on November 10 and 11. Flight C (0-500 Non-Life Master) will also be held there on November 10.

To play in any flight of the NAP qualifier one must first qualify at a club game designated for that purpose. The webmaster has asked club managers to provide a list of such games. The ones that have been received are posted here. This list, whch was updated on June 7, is surely incomplete, especially for the later months.


A great slate is on the plate for the Granite State Gathering in Nashua, NH. The tournament will run from Tuesday, June 19, through Sunday, June 25. The main events are the two Monster Knockouts. The first will be held on Friday and Saturday; the second is on the weekend. These bracketed events offer players at all levels great opportunities for gold points.

Saturday evening marks the return of the Pro-Am Pairs, which pairs more experienced players with non-Life Masters with under 500 masterpoints. Click on the ad at right to see details of these and all the other events.

This just in: Many-time World Champion Karen McCallum will present a lesson on Friday morning. She will also join Dan McGuire and Ron Mak to answer questions about the hands from the morning session during the lunch break on Wednesday. Both of these events are free!

For the first time in New England, players will be able to pay for entry fees with credit cards using the Purplepass system being evaluated by the ACBL.

The President of the ACBL, Jay Whipple, is scheduled to join us at the tournament. He plans to attend a special breakfast meeting on Saturday morning that is open to all players.

April was a really good month for New England's bridge players. 152 of them earned a new rank. The list is here.


A tab has been added at the left: "Tips for Tournaments." It contains links to short articles about playing in tournaments sponsored by District 25. Two of the articles are new. One serves as an introduction to playing in Regional Tournaments. The other concerns the new Continuous Victory Point Scales that will be used in some Swiss events.


Minutes: Carolyn Weiser, District 25's secretary, has provided minutes for the most recent meeting of the Executive Committee, the body that makes the most important decisions about the course of bridge in New England. You can read them here. The minutes for the latest Board of Delegates meeting are here. Note: Minutes are not posted until they have been approved, which generally happens at the next meeting. 

Minutes from all recent meetings as well as lists of members of the Executive Committee and the Board of Delegates can always be found under the "Officers & Admin." tab at left.

Winners Boards: NEBridge.org publishes photos of the winners of every strat in every event of every tournament sponsored by the district. Sad to say, the pages that contained the photos for 2014 and the first half of 2015 were lost in last summer's hardware catastrophe. However, the pages for all tournaments beginning with Hyannis in 2015 are available. The indexes have now been reconstructed.They are both available in the "Tournament Results" tab at left. The index by player can also be reached here. The index by tournament, date, and event is here. Please notify webmaster@NEBridge.org if you find any mistakes or want to submit a photo. It is never too late.


District 25 is definitely social. To keep up with the bridge news and gossip in New England check out our Facebook (NEBridge) page or follow us on Twitter (@NE_Bridge) or both. Twitter is very easy and non-threatening; for instructions on how to use it, just email webmaster@NEBridge.org.


New England Youth Bridge, Inc. has been working hard to showcase this great game to the video-game set. They urgently need our help. Details can be read here.


We strive to keep the website informative and easy to navigate.  Please  “Contact Us” if you have any questions or suggestions regarding District 25, the site, or anything else.
